Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman issued the following statement following the passing of his father, former state Senator J. Doyle Corman:
“I am heartbroken to share on behalf of my family that our beloved father J. Doyle Corman Jr. has died peacefully at home surrounded by his family.
“Dad always remained grateful for the privilege to serve the people of Central Pennsylvania as their state Senator for more than 20 years. He was a man of deep conviction whose devotion to making our community a better place guided his life and career.
“Still, Dad was a husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather first and a Senator second. There are no other titles in which he took greater pride. While in the coming days, many will remember him for his service to this Commonwealth, Dad’s lasting legacy is the example by which he lived, his expectations of us and the love he had for Mom and all of us.”
